“The best thing I could do was pray”

When I was in high school, I was part of a program for young Christian Scientists, and I always looked forward to our big get-together in January. During this weekend event, we got to hang out with our friends, listen to speakers, and have a big celebration for the graduating seniors. This particular year, I was super excited to see everyone after the long flight from Boston to St. Louis.

As the weekend continued, however, I became increasingly aware of a painful blister forming on my heel. I tried my best to keep enjoying myself, but the pain was quickly getting worse. Finally, on the last full day of the trip, I knew I had to deal with the problem, so I opted out of the dance party after the graduation ceremony and went back to the dorms instead. When I hopped in the shower, I noticed that the blister had grown and that the area around it was also swollen.
